I never used beagle so far, only recently read an article about it and
thought I would give it a try, so I emerged it yesterday.
So I have app-misc/beagle-0.2.18 now, with USE-flags "eds gtk pdf python
thunderbird xscreensaver", along
And I have gnome-extra/deskbar-applet-2.20.3 installed for searching.
My question: When I search for an email (say, using the name of the
sender) there are mails found OK, and when I click the result, I expect
the mail to be displayed, but only thunderbird gets the focus, without
the program being raised to the foreground, and without the actual mail
being displayed (even when I change windows to thunderbird).
"Google Summer of Code 2007 sponsored a beagle project on the
Thunderbird backend. The work is finished and was merged in svn trunk in
September, 2007. The thunderbird backend will be available in 0.3.0+."
Should I unmask this unstable release to get the feature I am looking for?
